The LA Construction Sites Series is a Glimpse into the Past

My favorite type of photos are the ones found in my parents old black and white photo albums, much like these from LA Construction Sites series.

The images take on a grainy quality that makes you long for the past. Going as far back as 1973 with the construction of the AON Center, the LA Construction Sites series is an authentic vintage collection of photos. Even though the images are of construction sites, the collection is really more like a history of the city.

Check out the LA Construction Sites series for yourself to see the rich background of Los Angeles.

Implications - Consumers in modern society look for items that take on a retro aesthetic. Products referencing times from the past appeal to those who desire nostalgia in their items. Companies could develop more designs with the past in mind to attract more customers.
